Rhapsody to offer digital liner notes
NEW YORK (AP) - Subscription music service Rhapsody has signed on to assist The Recording Academy's push for the availability of digital liner notes.
Last year the Academy launched the "Give Fans the Credit" campaign that is designed to give music listeners more information on the people behind the creation of a song, aside from the song's main performer. The Academy announced Tuesday that Rhapsody will begin to offer information on the songwriters, producers, engineers and background performers behind songs sometime this year.
Recording Academy CEO Neil Portnow said in a statement that since launching the initiative, "We've seen an outpouring of support from music makers and music lovers alike."
T Bone Burnett, music producers RedOne and Don Was, Jimmy Jam, Sheila E and songwriter Lamont Dozier are the "honorary ambassadors" pushing The Academy's initiative.
